Columbus Couch Pickup

couch-1270890-mEvery homeowner should know where their property begins and ends. Those property lines are what can be used to put up fences, plant trees and even end lawn mowing. As a homeowner, you are in charge of what happens on your property. If someone steps over those property lines without being invited, then you have cause for a complaint. That’s what recently happened to a local property owner who discovered that a mulch company has been illegally dumping onto her property. The mulch in question is supposed to be stored in bins just on the other side of the property line but apparently, there has been some spillage. Now the property owner has involved the local police and the city council, as is her right. This mess could end up in court. It’s another example of how illegal dumping is disrupting people’s lives.

Technically, anyone who puts something out on the curb without making arrangements for a pickup is illegally dumping. That is true for an old TV, a table, chair, mattress or sofa. There are some folks who think that if they put something out on the street it will magically disappear. They are basically making this someone else’s problem. At that point, you could call the city to arrange for a pickup but there is no guarantee that will happen. The result is that the junk item stays on the curb creating a health hazard and an eyesore. It doesn’t have to be that way especially since Junk King rolled into Columbus.

These are the professional junk removal experts who have been helping plenty of Columbus residents get rid of their bulky items the responsible way. Consider the couch pickup. When you’ve got an old sofa to get rid of, you can depend on Junk King to handle the job. They’ll send over two strong movers who will be able to get that couch up and down any set of stairs and out into the Junk King truck. After it is loaded, the Junk King crew can also pickup any other items you want tossed out. Yes, they’ll be doing all of the pickup. You won’t need to carry anything outside as long as you’ve got Junk King on the project. Junk King will also make every effort to see to it that your couch can be donated to a reputable charity. You might be done with it, but someone else can put it to use. Responsible couch pickup is just one of the many types of chores that Junk King can handle for you.

 

Celebrate Earth Day In Columbus With Green Junk Removal

Earth Day 2014Columbus is proud to be the largest Earth Day volunteer effort in the country. That is according to Earth Day Network. For last year’s Earth Day, Columbus mobilized over 3,600 volunteers who collectively raked up 11,000 service hours across 132 worksites. That’s mighty impressive by any standard. Earth Day 2014 appears to be on track to match those efforts. Among the many opportunities for volunteering is with the Glen Echo Park cleanup, the School for the Deaf tree planting and tilling the soil at the Kossuth Street Community Garden. Are you sensing a theme here? On some level, Earth Day is all about getting dirty whether that is cleaning or planting. Either way you’ll be doing your part to keep Columbus green.

You can extend the Earth Day theme by hiring Junk King for a green junk removal appointment. You first want to decide what you want to get rid of in your home or yard that you need a little help with. These would be the bulky pieces that can’t fit into your garbage cans. It’s the kind of stuff that needs two people to move and truck to haul away. That’s just what you’ll be getting when you hire Junk King: a two man moving crew and a truck big enough to haul away an entire house full of furniture.

Once you have your list of items to be collected by Junk King, you just need to set up your junk removal appointment. You don’t have to move anything to the curb or bring anything up from the basement. The Junk King crew is going to do all the work. How is this a green junk removal? With Junk King on the job, the majority of what you’re throwing out will be recycled in some form. You don’t have to figure out what can be recycled. The Junk King crew will take care of that for you. Even if you don’t ask to have your junk recycled, chances are it will be recycled anyway. This is the standard that has been set by the Junk King parent company. It’s a standard that every Junk King branch follows and Junk King Columbus is no exception.

What will all this recycling cost you? Not much! You’re only going to be charged a single, low fee for your junk removal. That fee will be based on how much space your junk takes up on the truck. Green junk removal won’t be a hassle if you hire Junk King from the jump.
